Trennbare Verben


During the last days of the A1.1 course it got a little bit trickier (but also more interesting!). One of my favourite grammar topics so far are the trennbare Verben, verbs that always go with a preposition before the verb on the infinitive form, but that you have to split when conjugating them.

This can seem like a big headache, because the preposition goes at the end of the sentence, therefore you don’t know the exact meaning until you hear the very last word. But that challenge is what makes it interesting too. Also, these verbs that we have learnt are most of them about transportation and getting around, so it has been a very useful lesson to understand most of the warning signs and spoken messages when using the public transport in Berlin.

Did you know about the existence of these verbs? I can’t wait to learn more on the next level!
